I’LL BE YOURS (Richard Carpenter 1966) Karen Carpenter 1966 Most agree that this melody/lyric is significant because it forms half (the B-side) of the first ever record written, sung and released by the then new duo, ‘The Carpenters’. (see elsewhere in ILP for ‘Looking For Love’, the A-side.) When I first saw you, my heart said 'Yes' You'd be the one to cure my loneliness And so every night I pray Pray that some day you will say Pray that you'll say you love me and then I'll be yours. I see you everyday, you say 'Hello' But I can't say a word I love you so And so every night I pray Pray that some day you will say Pray that you'll say you love me and then I'll be yours. I love you so, but you will never know You think I'm just a friend That's all I'll ever be, I know. I’m just a dreamer, it's nothing new But still I hope someday they'll all come true And so every night I pray Pray that some day you will say Pray that you'll say you love me and then I'll be yours Say you'll love me and then I'll be yours.
